Regular price $8.00 Save $-8.00

A really spectacular Jim Irvin hybrid, any time we offer this Cryptanthus, we sell out immediately.  This cultivar of ‘Pink Brocade’ x ‘Kit Hilbers,’ and grex mate to ‘Rapunzel,’ ‘Rumpelstiltskin,’ and ‘Rusty Rose,’ has 12+ lanceolate, densely serrated leaves with a center ridge in cross-section.  It is medium-large to 22″ in an open oval shape with shades of mahogany, purple, and red overlaid with an edge to edge banding in white, becoming gold with age, and broader to the center.  The underneath is covered with dense white scurf.
